KINNELON, NJ - Where are the camera's when you need them? Thankfully cameras were rolling on two separate scenes that show cops upholding their creed to protect and serve.

Two New Jersey policemen rescue an unconscious driver trapped in an overturned car.

Police dashcam video shows officers Mark Ehrenberg and Ricky Ferriola, risking their lives to save 45-year-old Dawn Milosky, after she crashed. Seconds after pulling her from the car, it explodes, and is overtaken by flames.

Meanwhile, bodycam video out of New Richmond, Ohio shows a cop keeping his cool in a different kind of heated situation.

"I was trying to open a dialogue with him I don't want to shoot you get on the ground but he wasn't having it. He kept repeating shoot me. At one point he said shoot me or I'll shoot you," said officer Jesse Kidder with the New Richmond Police Department.

Officer Kidder was responding to a call when he found himself in a face-to-face confrontation with a homicide suspect, believed to be armed and mentally ill.

"I wanted to be absolutely sure before I used deadly force," officer Kidder added.

Thankfully the officer didn't use deadly force when the suspect charged at him, daring him to shoot.

"Shoot me!" ---- "Get your hand out of your pocket!" ---- "Shoot me!" can be heard on the video. Seconds later, backup arrives and the suspect surrenders without incident.

Keeping yourself in check under the most deadly circumstances; that's what good policing is about.
